he's very literal. both candidates canceled campaign events today. mitt romney planned to spend the day in new hampshire, instead romney is going to hold what his campaign is calling a storm relief event. it's taking place in ohio. paul ryan will drop by campaign offices in hudson and lacrosse, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >

with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >> -- don't think that i believe the president's -- >> no. >> no, but you muddied things up, so now people are thinking that i think that. we're talking about the extraordinary -- the extraordinary decision by michael bloomberg to tell a president to stay away. >> yes. >> that does not happen. so we are here trying to speculate -- and i don't want anybody to think that i am suggesting the president wants to use the statue of liberty as a backdrop. the question was asked, willie, it's an extraordinary gesture by the mayor of new york city to tell the president of the united states, stay the hell away. and that's what michael bloomberg's done immediately after a scathing fron
minute october surprise in the presidential race. both the president and governor romney's campaigns forced to readjust their schedules. >> coming up we'll talk about the potential fallout on the race with nobody really knows with just eight days until the election. >> but first let's go to stephanie goss in narragansett, rhode island. good morning again. >> reporter: good morning. they said it was is going to get nastier and it is. the wind has picked up. we're getting bands of rain and just look at how angry that ocean is. you consider the fact that the eye of this storm will pass hundreds of miles from here. you get an idea of how big it is. it's remarkable to see surf like that, even more remarkable when you consider just beneath it is a beach that people were sun bathing on just this summer. so far they've already had some school closures across the state and power outages for some, 2700 people. off the coast they are reporting 17 a1/2 foot swells. they shut down the ferries. public transportation has been shut down in rhode island. we're obviously not through the worst it. the
romney, seems to be okay as far as disaster relief is concerned. both of these men, the governor and the president are trying to stay above politics for now at least, trying to do what is best for the people of new jersey and new york, some of the other states obviously that have been affected by this disaster and it is a real disaster. all of these leaders, they're working around the clock to do the best they can under these difficult circumstances. >> i think we have some of the comments that governor christie made. let's play that. >> i was on the phone at midnight again last night with the president, personally. he expedited designation of new jersey as a major disaster area. i was on the phone with fema at 2:00 a.m. this morning to answer the questions they needed answers, to get that designation. and the president has been outstanding. >> wolf, this really had an impact on the campaigns for both president obama and for mitt romney. >> the president not going to campaign tomorrow. i think he will resume his campaigning on thursday. it is sort of froze at least at the top lev
